Athens, Ga. – On April 15, the passport office in the University of Georgia Tate Student Center is relocating to a new space on the third floor, to Print and Copy Services. Previously located in the UGACard office, the operation is moving to the new space because of new federal regulations that prohibit the issuing of passports in facilities that produce other official identification cards.
Hours of operation will continue to be 9 a.m.- 5 p.m. weekdays. Signs will announce the move to any visitors.
Passport applications require proof of citizenship, a valid government-issued ID (two forms of ID are required without a valid Georgia driver’s license), and one set of passport photos, which may be produced in the office for $8 per set. A personal check or money order is required for State Department fees submitted with the application. The $25 execution fee due to UGA, plus photos fees if needed, can be paid with cash, personal check, credit/debit card or Bulldog Bucks.
Applicants may complete and print all of the necessary forms online at www.travel.state.gov. The forms are also available in the office.
The passport office is a service of the Tate Student Center within UGA’s Division of Student Affairs and is available to all members of the University community and to the general public. For more information on the passport office, see http://www.passport.uga.edu.
